Yep, Bobby Bonilla will get paid by the Mets until 2035

Sometimes I have to step back and remind myself that

a) not everyone reads all the crap I do

b) not everyone reads my dopey blog every day

and c) the site actually picks up new readers.

“News” broke today and I kind of ignored it all day, but enough people have sent it in that I figured I should post it.

Bobby Bonilla will be paid over one million dollars a year by the Mets from 2011-2035.

I guess that it financially made sense to defer it, but the future has arrived (it’s the gosh-darn 2010’s!  Where’s my robot?) and soon Bobby Bo will be making a million bucks again.

The Wall Street Journal went into some detail of the financials, and CBS Sports also covered it today.

It might make sense but as I gray, a piece of me will die every time I buy a ticket or a hot dog and think that Bobby will get a piece.

Now I’m really looking forward to the 2036 season…which will include nice blue uniforms with 50th anniversary of ’86 patches and a reunion featuring 70 year old Doc Gooden.  Unfortunately, the Mercury Mets will no longer be in Queens then.
